The Krebs Cycle. Huh? Don't worry, most of us are unfamiliar with how our body turns food into energy. Sit tight and we'll give you the keys to maximizing your energy levels and how to avoid energy frauds! In 1937 Hans Adolf Krebs discovered the citric acid cycle (since named the Krebs Cycle). He discovered how cells convert food into energy and then share this energy throughout the body. Hans won a Nobel Prize for his discovery. Now before we get too technical, let’s define a few terms.
- Krebs Cycle or Citric Acid Cycle is the mechanism each cell uses to create energy.
- Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) is the name of the energy produced in the Krebs Cycle.
- Electron Transport System (ETS) is the pathway cells use to disperse ATP after it’s produced.
